Blind Track

February 3, 2016

Yesterday I talked about the track clinic that I just attended in Indianapolis.  Some of you will remember Jon Saner who ran hurdles for me while attending Batesville High School.  Jon, of course, was not blind but had very limited vision.  Everyone was amazed that Jon picked hurdles as his event.  I did not...

Who will represent the state of Indiana in this year’s NCAA tournament?  Not too many years ago, Indiana was regularly getting 5 or 6 teams in the tournament every year.  Lately, it seems to have slipped.  So, who will go this year?  Will it be Indiana, Purdue, Notre Dame, Butler, or Valparaiso?
